Tree at Temple of the Tooth, Kandy, Sri Lanka on the 17th of November, 2010.
Is it some Wrightia?
Flowers were very mildly fragrant.

Hello,

The plant in picture is not Wrightia as Wrightia has connivent
anthers, a feature that is clearly absent. My guess is the flowers
belong to Holarrhena antidysentrica. I could however be wrong.

Any possibilities for this to be a Rubiaceae member?

Thanks H.S. ji for correcting me. Now i feel this is Kopsia arborea based on solitary drupes which turn bluish black on ripening (both unripe and ripe fruits seen in the picture), corymbose inflorescence and narrow corolla-lobes.
